Daily Sports Writer

Have you always loved watching or playing sports, but wanted to get closer to the action? Do you miss college sports and want a chance to attend Michigan games as well as tell the stories of Michigan athletes? Even if you’re just looking for a group of friends to talk about sports with, join The Michigan Daily Sports Section! We cover all 27 Michigan teams — and there’s no prior experience needed. Come check out where ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Rich Eisen got their start, and become part of a professional network that spans the journalism industry, among many others.

If you’re interested in joining or have any questions, reach out to our sports editors Jared Greenspan (jagreens@umich.edu) and Nicholas Stoll (nkstoll@umich.edu).

This position is closed. Please check back next semester to apply.

Want to write about winged helmets? Want to walk on the field at the Big House? Or maybe you’d rather interview Juwan Howard or Kim Barnes Arico after a basketball game. If so, then The Michigan Daily sports section is the perfect place for you. New writers will begin by reporting on non-revenue sports such as soccer, tennis and volleyball. After covering these events, writers will have the opportunity to work their way up to the basketball, hockey and football beats. Prominent sports journalists like Rich Eisen of NFL Network, Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic and Michael Rosenberg of Sports Illustrated all started their careers as members of The Daily’s sports section. Requirements to join the sports staff include attending a sports meeting and shadowing an experienced writer before writing your first story. There is no application — if you want to write, you can write. Afterwards, you can volunteer to pick up stories at our weekly Sunday meetings. New writers must write five stories before becoming an official staff member.
